BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Senior Hamas official Moussa Abu Marzouq on Sunday lashed out against Abdel Fattah al-Sisi a day after the Egyptian leader heaped blame on Hamas for their alleged support of a Wahhabi insurgency in the Sinai peninsula.
The current regime in Egypt is a “coup against the history, the ethics, and the principles of Egypt,” the Hamas official said in a statement on his Facebook page. Continue reading Abu Marzouq: Cairo regime a ‘coup against Egyptian ethics’
CAIRO (Ma’an) — The Egyptian authorities have decided to remove the city of Rafah on the borders with the Gaza Strip completely, says the governor of North Sinai district Abd al-Fattah Harhour.
In a news conference Wednesday, Harhour said it would be necessary to remove Rafah city completely in order to create a buffer zone on the borders with the Gaza Strip. Continue reading Egyptian Zionist dictatorship to remove border city Rafah for buffer zone
CAIRO (Ma’an) — An Egyptian committee has finished surveying the homes of individuals living between 500-1,000 meters of the Gaza border in preparation for the extension of a buffer zone on the border to a width of 1,000 meters, Egyptian military sources said Friday.
The move comes after the destruction of hundreds of homes inside the 500-meter area previously, as part of a wider effort to ensure that the joint Israeli-Egyptian blockade of the Gaza Strip be fully carried out. Continue reading Egypt prepares to destroy 1,200 homes for Rafah border zone
ROME (AFP) — Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said in an interview published Sunday that he would be prepared to send troops to a future Palestinian state to help stabilize it.
Sisi, who begins his first European trip on Monday since ousting his Islamist predecessor, made the comments in an interview with Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera.
He is due to visit France and Italy, while the trip will also include a meeting with Pope Francis.
The Egyptian leader said he would send forces to a future Palestinian state in agreement with Israel and the Palestinian authority.
“We are ready to send military forces into a Palestinian state,” he said.
“We would help the local police and reassure the Israelis through our role as guarantor. Not forever, of course. For the time necessary to reestablish confidence. But first a Palestinian state must exist where troops can be sent to.” Continue reading Zionist Tool Sisi: Egypt could send forces to future Israeli-controlled Palestinian bantustan
A senior Iranian cleric has denounced Israel’s acts of aggression against Palestinians, saying the Tele Aviv regime is pressing ahead with its project to Judaize al-Quds (Jerusalem).
“The Zionists don’t let Muslims into al-Quds, but instead let in extremist Jews and build houses for them so that they would not need military forces anymore,” Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati told worshippers at weekly Friday Prayers in Tehran.
He also hit out at a recent decision by Israel to set up 2,000 more settlement units in the West Bank, saying the move was part of a project to push Palestinians out of their homes. Continue reading Senior Iranian cleric slams Zionist entity’s Judaization bid
(EDITOR’S NOTE: No doubt that it is a well-known fact that the usurping Zionist regime has been actively plotting to recapture the Sinai ever since it dismantled the criminal Jewish settlement of Yamit decades ago. To facilitate its reentry into the strategic Egyptian territory, the illegitimate Talmudic entity has been engaged in a full-blown intelligence war against Egypt for the last several years. But due to the extreme pro-“Israel” nature of the Sisi regime, which gave its approval to the genocidal assault on Gaza over the summer, questions have lingered as to why the Jewish gangster “state” has continued supporting Takfiri proxies ostensibly against its ostensible ally. Looks like the answer may have finally arrived. The Takfiris of Sinai, who have now pledged allegiance to Zionist tool and ISIS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, have announced their intention to stop weapons from coming into illegally besieged Gaza — the same weapons being smuggled by Iran, Syria and Hizbullah to their brothers in the Palestinian Resistance — and there are fears growing in numerous circles of Hamas that the ISIS expansion into the Strip is a very credible, very imminent threat. We recall the brief war in Rafah, the southernmost point of Gaza, between Hamas and the Takfiri group Jund Ansar Allah, which resulted in the latter’s defeat and dozens dead. A similar and more catastrophic battle could most certainly take place now considering that the IOF assassinated Mohammed Abu Shamaleh, Mohammed Barhoum and Raed al-Attar during Operation Protective Edge, as these three men were known for their anti-Takfirism and for their coordination of the uprooting of Jund Ansar Allah and like-similar Wahhabi-Takfiri terrorist groups. This horrific development, coupled with the new geopolitical clout of the Takfiris and the seemingly lackadaisical response to the growing ISIS problem from the political leadership of Hamas, which clearly does not want to offend its allies in Turkey and Qatar whom are still bankrolling Takfiri terrorists, including ISIS, in Iraq and Syria, is, for all intents and purposes, a recipe for a nightmare scenario. The calculations of “Tel Aviv” are quite simple: Due to its failure to strike the leadership of Hamas, Islamic Jihad, the PFLP and other Resistance factions overtly in Cast Lead, Pillar of Cloud or Mighty Cliff, it is now resorting to the same covert unconventional military strategy which it has implemented in Syria as a way of weakening the Syrian Arab Army and Hizbullah. Therefore, there is only the *appearance* of a Zionist-Takfiri war on what some foolish commentators have had the gall to refer to as the “Arab nationalist” Egyptian military, an insult to martyred Egyptian giant Gamal Abdel Nasser if there ever was one; the real target of the Mossad-ISIS activity in the Sinai is Hamas and the other factions of the Falasteeni Mouqawamah. While we have faith in the Qassam Brigades to contain and ultimately overwhelm then bury the Zionist-designed ISIS threat, they need a free hand to do so, and if the Hamas political heads, particularly the treacherous, Doha-based Khaled Meshaal, don’t stop making token statements and start taking concrete action, then Zion’s barbarians will be inside the gates and the Palestinian refugees of the besieged Strip will be set for another round of bloodshed. Moreover, IGGIS, “Israel’s” Goy Golem in Iraq and Syria, will need another “G”, thus transforming it into IGGGIS, “Israel’s” Goy Golem in Gaza, Iraq and Syria. May ALLAH (SWT) prevent such darkness from unfolding and strengthen the resolve of the Palestinian Resistance. ~ Jonathan Azaziah) Continue reading A New Zionist Plot Against Gaza: ISIS in Sinai poses threat to Hamas
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi urged the United States and Europe on Thursday to urgently assist the Libyan army in its fight against Islamist militants.
“When we deal with terrorism only in Iraq and Syria, Libya will begin to be an attractive region for terrorists affecting the stability of… Libya and its neighbors. We will need the same measures happening in Iraq and Syria to be taken in Libya,” Sisi said in an interview with France 24.
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group has captured large swathes of land in Iraq and Syria and is now facing US-led airstrikes that have so far failed to stop the advance of its militants.
“The international community – Europe and the Americans – must help the Libyan national army regain its position and combat terrorism in Libya to restore security and stability,” Sisi added. Continue reading Sisi calls on US, Europe to intervene in Libya
